JustWorld International’s STRUT Fashion Show makes for a stylishly good time High season in Wellington means so many (many many many) events, and so little time. There’s still a whole three weeks to go, and it’s already hard to keep one’s head above water. But during the first weekend in March, rest assured that On the Line tried. In the midst of the madness, I stopped in for a little fun at the JustWorld International STRUT Fashion Show at WEF on Saturday night. After Nations Cup night, before the big Sunday grand prix, and right after Paul O’Shea cleared a whopping Puissance wall, a dozen or so well-known riders took over the transformed Wellington Club at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center and walked the gauntlet runway in front of a sea of smiling faces.
Do I ever love the movie Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken . The real life story of Sonora Carver, orphan, runaway and brave young girl who had a dream of becoming a “diving girl” at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.

They simply mastered their freestyle, which Steffen said was the best he’d ever felt with Ravel. “I’ve never done a better freestyle,” he said. “He just felt simply amazing.

Just another Thursday night in Wellington. If only every dressage show included gold bikini-clad fire dancers, mermaids lounging about in an infinity pool, and chandelier ice sculptures. The organizers of the World Dressage Masters Palm Beach sure know how to attract a crowd, and the place was packed with all of the above, as well as a who’s who roster of dressage stars and their hangers-on last night at the…..exhibitor’s party. What, did you think I was talking about the competition?
